Remember them? Technically, we saw Aiken and Kellen fairly recently in Vincent's flashback. Although they looked a fair bit different as kids. I guess you could say they've changed a lot in the last fifteen years (imagine that).
As for modern day scenarios we've seen Aiken as recently Chapter 13. We should all remember that fiasco. Kellen, however, has been out of the picture for kind of a long time. In fact, not only is this the first time we're seeing her since (I think) more than half the story ago, this may also be the first time I've drawn her without her cell phone glued to her head. XD
So why are we finally seeing them again now after all this time? What could this potentially mean for the future? Is the randomized cookie message worth listening to (either one)?
Rain, all characters and all other aspects of the story are copyright material belonging to me.
Kellen and Aiken come to visit to try to figure things out making it not such a "Peaceful Weekend" after all.
Plot given away. Boom. 8)
Now that is way long ago when you saw what happen recently and yes the Cookie did talk about Baby Sis
I know it's hard to change the gender of someone (when referring to them), but it's upsetting how little they show any interest in changing it or even thinking about it. :/ Even supportive people might do it. Augh.
Took me a moment to figure out what you meant by that pie biz
I love this comic, so so so so so much! =] keep up the awesome work.
Lol the cake is a lie cookie
Becuase you know the cake is a lie. Portal fan!
Portal? Whats that... she's definitely not referencing any kind of copyrighted or trademarked material.... nope.
Now you're thinking with oval shaped inter-dimensional gateways to other locations!
(okay, maybe i tried too hard here)
Hehe, "The pie is a falsehood." What game is that from, Teleporter?
lol @ the pie is a falsehood
So on the date this occurred near last year so we are in the future and the entire alien/Kellen situation may have all ready been resolved?
@fairfax: Though I don't know anyone personally who is trans*, I do misgender someone sometimes when I think of them before transition or even during an initial transition (This happens a lot when I talk about characters in Rain). I think what Aiken and Kellen need to do is expose themselves to who Rain is now and accept that she is a girl, and I think from there, they will more likely start to use the right pronouns.
@Flexor: That might be difficult though, since Rain will quite rightly be hesitant to speak to them. And actually tbh I'm struggling to think of a good reason for her to bother. What does she get out of it? She's been doing perfectly fine without them for the last several years, and doesn't seem to have any emotional attachment to them left other than hurt.
That's true but as said before they are the only other family she has (apart from fara) and is probably feeling hurt because of previous emotional attachment to her sibling that they have seemingly discarded.
Cake is a pie?
Once you play Portal there is no way back. You have to finish every test chamber and defeat every evil AI in your path.
